The weather predictions for the coming week the worst.
The rain storm predicted for the coming holiday week has been expanded to include snow in some areas and has been described as a “super storm.” The weather report has further been expanded to include the whole country. Weather experts warn everyone to brace for “El Nino weather” to unleash SNOWMAGEDDON.
I doubt snow in Key West. Has it ever? The prediction for southern states is “wetter and colder.” The torrential rain predicted for the week could be an early sign of a climatic weather shake-up.
A power failure last night . The first in a long time. Around 6 pm. Lasted 40 minutes. Seven hundred forty three properties affected. Mine one, of course. No big deal. I was in bed watching TV. Turned over and tried to take a nap.
I haven’t seen George at Zip Auto on Stock Island in probably a year. Took my car in for a tune up, etc. No specific problem. Took all of a half hour.
George chastised me again. He always does because I do not drive the car enough. He claims and I believe him, cars are made to be driven. If you don’t, they slowly break down on their own. I have a 2010 Volkswagen Beatle convertible. Purchased new 13 years ago. Only 53,000 miles. From George’s perspective, I drive too little and accordingly hurt the car.
Archeologists have opened the tomb of Jesus for the first time in years. It lies beneath a Roman temple. The place where Jesus’ body was buried for 3 days after the crucifixion.
Most, not all, believe the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem is the place of His burial. The Roman temple is beneath the Church.
In the fourth century, Emperor Constantine, a recent convert to Christianity, ordered Jesus’ tomb to be found. They located a 200 year old tomb built by Hadrian beneath the temple. The tomb was similar to the one described in the Bible and concluded it was the place where Jesus was buried for 3 days. They decided they had found the “site.”
The tomb was unsealed for the first time in centuries in 2016 for a very brief period.
The “site” is recognized as the “best guess” place as to the tomb’s location.
